Congratulations to Fish Griwkowsky, a journalist from the Edmonton Journal, who took our Minimalism Game to the next level by documenting his month-long experience in this newspaper article, which includes an impressive (and funny) two-minute video.

Griwkowsky said the process of purging the excess was “cathartic, painful, and generally embarrassing.” And after the clutter was cleared, he had a revelation: “Getting rid of all this crap sure feels like a dream.”

A brand-new month is just around the corner. So grab a partner—friend, family member, co-worker, or archnemesis—and get ready to let go. New to the Minimalism Game? Here’s how it works. You can share your photos—and see others’ journeys—using the #MinsGame hashtag on social media.
